Lots of Good News

Good news #1:
Yesterday was a good day. It was the first day of week 3 of the calorie counting challenge. I made it! I'm down 6 pounds in two weeks. Now I just have to keep it up.

Good news #2:
The second success was a good dragon boat practice. All of the issues I had before are becoming more solvable. I got wax for my paddle. I found out I have a renewal on my inhaler prescription so I can go get that, I got to paddle in the front of the boat which I really loved so I was really able pushed myself.

Good news #3:
I remembered that we had a very belated wedding gift from my parents friends Ken and Leslie Conachan. They gave us a gift card to Target. So I asked the husband if I could use it for a better bathroom scale and he said sure, so I got a fancy new scale.
The thing I was most worried about was that it was going to say that I weigh more than I thought. Luckily our previous scale wasn't as bad as I thought and I am right where I thought I was. The other cool thing about it is that you can put in your height, gender, and age and it use standard ratios to calculate your body fat, body water weight, bone mass, and body mass index. The little color lines tell you if your numbers are good or bad in these categories. It also lets you set information for different users up to 10 people. So Paul has a profile on there too.

Good news #4:
My new job at the bowling alley is a daily exercise routine! I walked for all 4 hours of my shift last night with very few breaks. I should wear my shoe tracker to see how many miles I'm actually walking because I bet it's probably significant!

That makes all of the good news for now. How are other people doing?

  1. Yay! You got a Weight Watchers scale. How are you liking it? I'm glad you had such a positive post :) And walking at your new job kicks ass - I bet that's helping a lot.
